Paris is always a good idea, right? My sister and I came up with this good idea and jumped (or ran in our case, as we were very late!) on the Eurostar for a couple of days to explore the French capital. The last time I took a trip to Paris, I was eleven and on a school trip to practise my language skills and make projects, so this trip was quite different.
We spent the Eurostar journey practising our GCSE French phrases, ‘Ou est la gare?’, and ate croissants whilst watching the Paris episodes of Gossip Girl to get us in the French mood, not that we needed it!
Once we reached the capital, we quickly dropped off our bags and started to roam around Parisian streets. Although we did buy Metro travel cards, we mainly explored Paris on foot, which I would say is the best way to see Paris, as you can really absorb the culture, rather than seeing the inside of a train!
A fabulous first day in Paris, full of accordion players (it couldn’t have been more cliché!), French pharmacies, macaroons, middle aged French men laughing at us for taking pictures of the ‘Metro’ sign and oh this little old building that looks like some serious scaffolding work, La Tour Eiffel.
